Very laid back and caring professor. I missed a question on a quiz and emailed him a quote from the article and why I answered the way I did. He emailed me the next day thanking me for reviewing the quiz and article in detail and awarded me the points. Come to class, have a good attitude, participate and you should easily make an A.

Prof. Beattie is my fav. prof. at UNCC. He is passionate about special education and the way he dresses. If you show up and take good notes you will have no problem passing. He will give out extra credit on random days and it tends to be when people skip class. Honestly if you don't pass his class with an A, you should reconsider your major.

Awesome professor! He inspired me to change my major to special education! His class is very easy as long as you take notes, study for the quizzes and come to every single class. Would take this class again!

Great teacher! Interesting lectures! Very inspirational. He knows what he is talking about and make it very fascinating to listen to! There are required observation hours in a school, but other than that the tests were online and rare hw. Would definitely take again! Cares about students and wants others to care about kids with special needs.

Dr. Beattie's goal is for you to learn about children with specials needs. There are A LOT of people in this class so it is lecture. He is pretty entertaining in relation to college classes. The class is designed to get an A if you attend and give forth any effort. He doesn't try to trick you it is just a class to learn about special education

Super laid back, can talk about practically anything. He is clear and loves to talk about his family (some quiz questions are about his family). He goes over the quiz the class before you take it and is very patient. Probably the best professor I will ever have!!

Easiest class I've ever taken in my life. Easier than just about any high school class you could imagine. No exams or final, 10 online quizzes ( answer was "a" to every single question) 5 in class quizzes only difficult if you don't show up & somewhat listen to what he says, and some clinical hours. Easy GPA booster if you need an elective.

There are online quizzes each week but are super easy. The final is optional. The clinical hours and paper is a majority of your grade but if this is in your major then it is very interesting. He is veryour dry but is sometimes funny.

Dr. Beattie is passionate about what he does. He wants his students to do well and learn. His biggest goal is for people to walk away appreciating people with special needs. If you attend class, you should do well. His class is lecture but there are 200 people in the class. He is very funny and is able to hold your attention for a large class.

Dr. Beattie's class was VERY easy! As a person he tries to incorporate humor into his class, for the most part though, he is pretty dry to listen to. I found his class long and boring and a lot of it was just common sense. There are only 5 in class quizzes, 10 clinical hours along with a paper, and online quizzes for each chapter.

Best teacher I have ever had! I learned so much from him even though I knew half of it already. He is always there for you. He understands life happens. He is hilarious. Show up the majority of the time and you will get an A.

Dr. Beattie is just a sweet old man. Attendance isn't necessary, but a good idea when an in-class quiz is coming up. There are only 5 of them and the class before he will give you a study guide in class. 10 hours in a classroom clinical is required, but enjoyable and easy. Bring him canned goods? Extra credit. Love this guy.

One of the best professors I've had at UNCC so far. His Moodle quizzes come straight from his textbook, he gives silly trivia quiz questions about his life he uses on the quizzes to people who show up for class. In class quizzes are a breeze, notes are easy to take so studying is very simple.
